STEVEHARVEY >>>> With their point-a-minute de­fense lead­ing the way, New Mex­ico’s Lost Lo­bos took over the Bot­tom Ten lead.

The Lo­bos, edged 14-56 by Utah, have al­lowed 180 points in three games. How­ever, they face a threat to the top spot Satur­day when they play equally in­ept Ne­vada Las Ve­gas (0-3), ranked No. 6. It’s a must-lose game for both teams.

No. 7 North Carolina, which had 12 play­ers sit out a 24-30 loss to Ge­or­gia Tech be­cause of an NCAA in­ves­ti­ga­tion, an­nounced it’s switch­ing to six-man foot­ball.

Else­where, No. 18 Washington State plays USC, which has been so unim­pres­sive in win­ning its first three games that it has slipped from No. 14 to No. 20 in the As­so­ci­ated Press’ top 25 poll. At that rate of de­cline, the Tro­jans could be­come the first 13-0 team to fin­ish No. 40. 11. East­ern Michi­gan (0-3); 12. Akron (0-3); 13. LouisianaMon­roe (0-2); 14. Ge­or­gia (1-2); 15. Vir­ginia Tech (1-2); 16. Ohio (1-2)*; 17. Ten­nessee (1-2); 18. Washington State (1-2); 19. Brigham Young (1-2); 20. Gone fish­ing. *In an un­usual dou­ble­header, Ohio lost a foot­ball game to Ohio State, 7-43. But Ohio’s Ru­fus Bob­cat mas­cot won a sep­a­rate match, knock­ing down the Buck­eyes’ mas­cot dur­ing the game. Ohio later apol­o­gized.
